It's been a while...

Oh, how I have neglected the blog but I'm back and working hard to balance work, craft and play. Fasten your seat belts for this is going to be a long one. Well for those of you that follow me on Facebook you will have seen the newest addition to the plush family Yolanda the Panda. I'm also working on some new Owls, having found some fantastic fabric finds.

At the Last Saturdays Event at SEED I met some lovely people including Christy from Ever/After who designs the most wonderful clothes for littlees and Gustavo from Marydesign who sells really fabulous jewelry.
I was having a closet clearout the other day and had run out of bags in which to place my sold items, I stumbled on the idea of a T.shirt bag on and it was so easy. I am now going to hoard all my t.shirts and make them into bags as well as collect them from friends.

 You may have seen this photo on my facebook it was a pure wool Jaeger skirt that was calling out to be made into a stuffed animal. So here you have it, and what a chic rabbit it is if I say so myself. More to come.
Lastly, having never mastered knitting in the round yet still wanting to make hats I thought I'd have a go at making a beanie/ glove combo. The sweater had been felted yet not so much that it didn't still have some stretch. I can attest that the hat is very cosy, we had a freakish hot week in September but now that we are back to fall weather I will wear the gloves too.

 Lastly, a date for your diary if you happen to be in Orange County, yours truly will be hosting it so I'll definitely be there. The more the merrier as they say.
